Proper formation sets the stage for success throughout the life of the business and better prepares it to weather regulation changes and financial ups and downs.
Whether you’re new to business formation or want to refresh your existing skillset, join us for Choosing & Forming the Right Business Entity for Your Clients. Explore the advantages and disadvantages of different business entities. Plus, hear from a panel of experienced practitioners on how best to advise your clients in a variety of situations.
Let’s get down to business
Partnerships, limited partnerships, business corporations, nonstock corporations, limited liability companies – how do you help your client choose the appropriate business entity for their needs and goals?
Start by understanding how the main components of each type of entity compare to one another. This topical seminar is designed to help you study entities based on organizational, operational, taxation, and other key considerations. You’ll more easily see how each entity could potentially meet your client’s specific needs.
For each entity type, receive an overview of:
- Governance structures
- Fiduciary duties, rights, and limits
- Tax implications
- Tax planning for future sale and disposition
In addition, explore the limitations of forming a professional service entity (such as a dentist’s or doctor’s office), including what’s allowed based on current laws and each professional service area's own rules.
The seminar will conclude with a panel discussion that puts it all together as panelists apply the information you’ve learned to relevant, hypothetical fact patterns and scenarios.
